I'm a writer and a content strategist with a passion for solving life's problems.
I use the written word to help brands, communities, and individuals create meaningful connections, while addressing various challenges along the way. In my work, I advocate for accessibility, authenticity, and engagement.
When I'm not writing, I like to watch films and TV shows, or geek out on beauty, K-pop, and fashion.
I am also an advocate for mental health awareness, disability rights, and women's rights. These advocacies were informed by my experiences as a disabled, neurodivergent woman living in the Philippines.
As the copywriter for this account, I ideated and developed collaterals spanning across digital and social media, ranging from monthly content plans, KOL content guides, to conceptualization and execution of online events such as webinars.
I also wrote and conceptualized the brand's launching video, which featured actress and animal welfare advocate Heart Evangelista and her pet dog, Panda.
One significant webinar I worked on was a collaboration with Lara’s Ark PH where we discussed the importance of rescuing and adopting dogs.
The video has generated over 4.3 million views on Facebook as of 2023.

Part of the team that conceptualized and executed Charmee’s Menstrual Health Month influencer campaign in May 2021.
As the designated copywriter for this project, I helped develop the concept and strategy for this campaign. The campaign revolved around the importance of proper menstrual hygiene and eliminating the taboos surrounding menstrual health. The agency tapped content creators from the medical team on TikTok to discuss these topics. I also developed a reach out message encouraging these KOLs to join.
The campaign was successful, since some of TikToks related to the topic went viral. This can be attributed to the close collaboration between our influencer management team and the content creators involved in this project.

Fun Thing #1: Film Photography
I dabble in film photography when I have the time (and the budget). My usual subjects are sceneries and moments from everyday life.
Fun Thing #2: Content Creation
Outside of work, I like to develop various forms of content. I have a newsletter that I update regularly. Recently, I've been experimenting with making mini-vlogs to document my life and my mental health journey.
Fun Thing #3: Watercolor Painting
One of the most cliched, yet most useful pieces of advice I've received about detaching my work from my self-worth is to find a hobby. Currently doing color experiments on watercolor as a means to relax and have fun.
